Subject: The most incredible 2 days of my dead life.
I was lucky enough to attend both the Mosque the night before and this one.
What a blast, who would have know back then that these 2 shows were some the greatest performances the band put on.
Thank You Band for the good times, Thank You Archives for letting me relive these moments and others.
Peace and Happy Holidays to All
Its time to legalize it this is my mantra for 2013.

maybe my favortite May show still on the Archive. "Sugaree" is fantastic and "Terrapin" flavoured 2nd is outstanding!
Subject: =O summer 77...
Whoa. Undoubtedly one of the tightest shows from the always tasty summer of 77. If you thought Barton was the peak of that month, behold what these gentlemen unleashed on Baltimore a few weeks later. The Sugaree is a jaw dropper - probably the best one I've heard. Jerry goes for it... to put it lightly. Set closes with a truly firemost Bertha. The whole band was on all cylinders this night; simply a must-hear for any fan of this exceptional period of Dead (frankly, who isn't?). Many thanks to Mr. Ashley for the exceptional mixdown - this special show got the magic touch =]
Subject: totally smokin'
as far as im concerned you can keep Barton Hall ill take this one or the night before in Richmond anyday just a killer Music the Sugaree well im thinking its been covered on this page pretty well but smokin for sure ive always loved the 77 Jack-A-Roe's too. great show in a great month thanks Archives and especially Jay and Bertha
Check out the Sugaree on Dicks picks Vol. 10. Its a winterland show on December 22, 1977 it is the same year and has this same vibe as do many 77 sugarees but the dicks picks vol. 10 version is more intense and jerry has much more raw emotion. The only part I liked more in this version is keith is more in the mix.
A motherfuckin' classic version of Sugaree. Orgasmic. Best version on the planet. Someone, tell me where I can find one better because I can't wait to listen to it through. And, for those of you that don't find much good in Donna, tune in to the background vocals here. There is no fucking way you will ever convince me that Brent did a better job. She had her good moments and some that were less than good. This is perfection.
In fact, for what it's worth this was really a fine show. If it was a 1976 or 1978 performance many would say it was a standout. A truly outstanding recording.
Exellent both in performance and sound quality. Thanks Jay. This band played so many shows I could never rate any particular one as the best but I like this about as well as any of my personel favorites.
Subject: Hey now!
Don't knock on Sunrise! Donna's songs were great 77-79! From the Heart of Me and Sunrise might not be my favorite, but they are nice to year in the occational show to shake things up. I really like her voice in '77. St. Stephen, Not Fade Away, Estimated Prophet, Terrapin...I couldn't imagine those songs without her! Besides, I would rather listen to her solo songs than the cheesy 80's love ballads that Brent did! OUCH they suck ass! Far from Me, Easy to Love You...I have tried to force myself to listen to his songs the whole way through to see if I'm missing something. I always end up skipping the track a minute into it. His tunes fit in more with White Snake or something!
This show is GREAT! May '77...you cant go wrong! Tight, full sounding band! FIVE STARS...INCLUDING SUNRISE! haha :)
Subject: May 77'
Well played tunes thru the whole show. It's nice to hear a 77' show with a twist in the set list. I could do without Sunrise. Donna has really gotten better but that does not mean I want to hear her sing a song by herself. Overall 4 stars with Jack-o-Roe and High Time making the show a keeper

Subject: Definitely A High Time
despite the band seeming p.o.'ed at a late audience arrival, they hold it intact for a while and then explode in all of its frustration.
to fully appreciate this show back off the low end and elevate the gain.
beautiful hall ambience. remarkable.
brown-eyed, jack-a-roe, passenger,
high times in the ol' town hall
not a barn burner throughout but a keeper no doubt.
amazing remaster of a fanatical recording.
rates a 5 stars merely for overall sound and general enthusiasm.
Daddy D -
Not a song I'd normally comment on, but the High Time is exquisite!
Subject: Grate show!
Love this one, 5 stars fer sher
